Gift Bag Dress Up with My Mind's Eye

Do you have a stash of gift bags? Maybe some that need a little spiffing up before you re-use them?  I've got a tutorial post over on FotoBella's blog on how to do just that.  The project features My Mind's Eye Just Sayin' I Want It All Bundle  & has some great paper that does most of the work for you.  




Add some tissue paper and a bow to the bag and you've got yourself a custom wine bottle gift bag.


Check out the Just Sayin' bundle and see for yourself how easy this project is.  

Have a fabulous day!

Love You Beyond The Stars Layout

Hello This fabulous bundle from FotoBella is Bo Bunny Star-Crossed.  I love the dark red color and light green combo in this collection!  There are some fun choices out of the Ephemera for embellishing as well. 


I've been saving this photo of my youngest daughter and I for just the perfect scrapbook paper, and this is it!  The photo goes so well with this color scheme.  It is one of my favorite photos of us and I wanted to do it justice.


A close up of some of the embellishments from glitter chipboard stickers. playing cards and journal cards.  I did my journaling around the heart on the playing card for something a little different.  


This heart with wings is by far my favorite embellishment of the collection!  Love it!

Stop by FotoBella.com to take a look at this bundle and be sure to have a fabulous day!

Sweet Spring layout with My Minds Eye

When it's cold outside, sometimes you need a little Spring the cheer you up.  The My Mind's Eye Just Sayin' I Want It All Bundle is full of Spring colors and bright inspiration.   It's one of the bundles I've been working with for the FotoBella design team and is featured on their blog this month.  


Although, this is feminine in color and design, I found a Spring photo of my son that worked with this collection!  I think it's the fact that he's holding a snuggly and looks so cute, that I was able to pull off the floral pattern as the background.  



In the Mixed Bag of embellishments I was able to find the top hat and the gold crown to add that masculine touch it needed.  I used chipboard to create layers with the embellishments and give the layout some dimension. 


It's still ok to add a little bling to this layout, right?  I love the gold glitter in the Just Sayin' line.  To see more of this collection, visit FotoBella.com and check out the My Mind's Eye Just Sayin' I Want It All Bundle.  

Have a fabulous day!

The "Love" Wreath

Valentine's Day is right around the corner so how about a fun home decor project?  Shortly after the new year I found a plain metal, heart wreath in the dollar bin at Target.  On it's own the wreath was not so exciting...but paired with my FotoBella I Want It All Bundle Bo Bunny Star-Crossed Collection it became fabulous!


What started out as a plain heart metal wreath, quickly came to life with tons of detail.  I covered the metal hearts with patterned paper from the Star-Crossed Collection.


With the help of my Silhouette, I cut out the word "Love", the love birds, cupid and the red flower.  I also embellished with the chipboard stickers from the collections.  


Isn't it gorgous?!?  Forgive me for not being very modest about this project, but I can't stop staring at it!  The ribbon was left over from Christmas and matched perfectly.  For some more bling, I used the Diamond Stickles to glitter up the feathers on the dream catcher. the word "Love"  and I also added some rhinestones to the flower and dream catcher.  


Ahhh cupid has struck again.....I'm in love!

Get your Bo Bunny Star-Crossed Bundle and if you want this wreath, seriously run to Target right now!  

Have a fabulous day!

Good For One Day At the Beach layout

 Hey there everyone!  I'm sharing a beach layout today using Bo Bunny Star-Crossed I Want it all Bundle at FotoBella.com.  This collection has made it onto my "Favorites" list.  The dark red and blue colors accented by the black is gorgeous.  What really did it is when I saw the dreamcatchers, feathers and the hot air balloons.  You see I've made sure to use those elements in this layout.  



The colors in this beach photo are complimented perfectly by the Star-Crossed collection.


Aren't the hot air balloons fun?  They make a great embellishment for this outdoor photo of the kids enjoying the Slurpees at the beach.  


I fussy cut the feathers, wrapped them with twine and tied them together in a similar way that you see them tied to dreamcatchers.  Such a beautiful and simply addition to any project.  

Have a fabulous day!

Fun Family Time Layout

One of the most important things about the holidays is spending time with your families.  I love scrapbooking the holidays of previous years, and remembering all of those great times we shared.  Today's layout is made with We R Memory Keepers North Pole I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.com.  The bundles are fabulous and this one will not disappoint.  FotoBella bundles have a TON of paper in them, not to mention all the embellishment goodies that go along with it.  


Don't you just love these script alpha stickers?  They make such stunning titles. 


I got a lot of photos on this page using my circle stamp to crop out the backgrounds of the photos and draw the focus to our faces.  


Happy Holidays everyone!  Hope they are full of your own fun family times!

Have a fabulous day!
